The Windchill Legacy

Warmed by Windchill

Warmed by Windchill“A true story that immediately will consume any horse advocate with passion, hope, inspiration, and struggle.”
—Carolyn Stull, School of Veterinary Medicine, University of California, Davis

One bitterly cold winter afternoon, a nine-month-old colt—extremely weak, starving, left to die—was frozen to the rock-hard white landscape of a Northern Wisconsin pasture. His whinny for help barely carried through thirty-mile-an-hour winds lashing snow and ice against his thin coat. But somewhere inside him a light refused to go out.

The colt’s call for help was answered, and that light inspired a worldwide response to his story. The struggle of the little colt, called Windchill by his rescuers, was reported widely, and soon 1.2 million people were following Windchill’s progress on a blog and webcam.

Warmed by Windchill
tells how Jeffrey L. Tucker, owner of nearby Raindance Farms, and Kathi Davis, owner of a horse training operation co-located at Raindance, rescued and cared for the colt, aided by an outpouring of assistance. Donations of money, feed, blankets, and other supplies streamed in as round-the-clock volunteers tried to save Windchill. Warmed by Windchill is both heartening and heartbreaking.
